Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Does anyone else have trouble steering their tacoma from a stand still? I mean, backing out of parking spots, when you're going really slowly, my steering wheel is REALLY hard to turn, its do-able but I just wanted to know if anyone else had this problem or if its just me?

A common problem with a lot of vehicles. Since the power steering is operated by fluid pressure generated from a belt-driven pump, when you're operating at lower speeds there is less fluid assist.

What if you have this and don't have power steering?

Intermediate Steering Shaft #2 is seizing as on most Tacomas, causing a stiff steering problem. Mine is 2008 with same problem (32500 miles)

Make sure your truck is in regular drive and not in 4 wheel high. I own a 2008 Tacoma 4x4 and it does have a hard time turning in the 4 wheel high mode. It does not in regular drive. Make sure your 4x4 converter switch is in regular drive. I think the switch is 2H, 4H and 4L. Switch needs to be on 2H. If your switch is in 2H position then your vehicle is stuck in 4H and never switched over therefore you have been driving in 4H all the time and your vehicle needs to be fixed.
